Puppy Update! End of January 2017

Puppy Update! End of January 2017

The puppies have grown and have a great life! They get constant love and attention. The Big Boy has accepted them as family and has come to tolerate their antics (to a point).

The little girls had their “Lady Parts” surgery and have fully recovered! There was a little bit of worry about the psychological trauma but everyone is better now. Their behavior is back to normal and they went and had a checkup yesterday at the clinic and all is well.

Little Pink Bellies – August 29, 2016

img_7815

Winter weather here in Los Angeles and it has been very cold, so we’ve gotten the puppies a selection of warm sweaters, fleece coats and “Thundershirt” wraps. They have complete run of our office and the kitchen, and enjoy sleeping on the bed, on their dog bed and on the big pillow in the dog pen. They learned very fast how to jump out of the pen, so it’s always open, they come and go as they please and we use it as a play area and as a place to keep all their toys, bones and chew rags.

They’ve been doing work on the backyard and there have been some big changes to the house in the last few months. We took out all of the lawn and roses and landscaped with brick patio and rock. It looks really good, reduces watering to once a week and helps to conserve water (and lower the DWP bill). They love to run around the big backyard and we built a beautiful covered dog run to provide them with a safe outdoor space to play.

The New Covered Dog Run in the Backyard

Both are very smart, they are learning and responding well to training. They’re spoiled and still prefer to be indoors. They love being with people and always want to be part of the action. Bandit hasn’t loss her edge: she will go through any open door, stick her nose into and try to eat everything unless she’s corrected. She’ll find any small piece of plastic, paper scraps, wood or sticks, leaves, etc. and try to chew and/or eat them. And she’s really cute which makes all of it adorable.

The Bear seems almost twice as big as little Bandit now, but they play and wrestle like they’re the same size. Bandit is still pretty small and she fits perfectly in my lap and Bear has grown too big to be a lap dog. And both are still growing more everyday!

Happiness is Warm Puppies!

So, Monday morning 5am PST, and here is the WEEKEND PUPPY UPDATE.

NOTE: This is PART 2, a continuation of a Previous Blog > “Happiness is a Warm Puppy!” UPDATED! Lots more pictures!> http://wp.me/p3dhVM-5b5 but can stand alone as well.

It was a good weekend. The new baby is adjusting really well and learning very fast. She is eating a lot of solid food, gaining weight and working on being housebroken. She is such a sweetheart with a great personality, very feisty, stubborn and playful. She is also a fierce little girl and still a little “bitey” (she tests how hard she can nip) because she is still teething, so she has lots of toys (of varying hardness) to chew on. And she’s really fast! Because of the circumstances, we try not to let her get far away when we’re outside, even in the secured side yards. And we’re not letting them in the big yard even during the day until we get a new fence. There’s also an owl that lives in the eucalyptus tree and she is so little we’re not taking chances.

Normally we crate train our new puppies to house break them, but the new baby doesn’t like being caged and is exhibiting some signs of cage trauma, so she is roaming free and has already learned how to let us know she wants to go outside. She is still having accidents inside, but she is learning fast! She is sleeping on the bed in the office at night and has learned to use the doggie steps to get up and down.

SUNDAY NIGHT! Another new puppy arrives!

14089277_1472366082789953_654694982387346446_n

We decided not to wait and got another new puppy! She is also a cavachon, from a different litter than the new baby, and actually a little larger. She had a long flight and arrived at LAX around 8pm. She is beautiful, but still in a little state of shock from the traveling  adventure. She ate and slept and met the other dogs and just went out for her first poop, then she ate again. Later today she’ll go to the vet for a thorough exam (the new baby had her exam the day after she arrived too).

UPDATE! Tuesday August 23, 2016 at 5AM

Pictures from Monday:

Puppy training! Keeping me occupied! The second one just arrived last night so this is her first day. The first one is doing very well after a week. I’m in puppy heaven/hell, but they’ll have each other to play with, and the Big Boy is really interested in them now.

Going to Hawaii? Save a Dog’s Life!

Going to Hawaii? Save a Dog’s Life!

Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Air Canada and Aloha Air Cargo say dogs can accompany returning flyers on a nonstop flight to Seattle, Portland, San Diego or Oakland and be delivered to shelters on the mainland for adoption!

10911460_1058551390838093_157341414843803767_o

The Kauai and Maui Humane societies are seeking passengers returning from Hawaii to escort a dog or two to the mainland on their next trip. These transfer programs help save dog’s lives by sending them to Washington, Oregon and California animal shelters rather than being euthanized…

All you do is sign up and they travel back with you. Volunteers on both ends handle all the logistics. The Kauai and Maui shelters pay the discounted rate given by the airline and will provide the dog crate, as well as the necessary medical papers. All you have to do is show up for your flight as scheduled, they’ll do the rest!

Contact them with your flight date & destination:

 “If you want loyalty (in Hollywood) get a dog.

If you want loyalty and attention – get a smart dog.” ~ Grant Fairley

Yesterday, Thursday, December 18th, 2014, we bid a final farewell to our good “Old Boy”.

The hardest part of owning a dog (or any pet) is knowing that you will outlive it (barring unforeseen circumstances). Our dogs are members of the family (like children) and it is a terrible loss when they die. I loved my good boy Otis.

Otis was the leader of our little dog pack, up until last weekend, when the “Big Boy” challenged him and took the dominant position away. He was old, even in dog years, and his health was failing. He was suffering from painful arthritis and other problems for the last year. It wasn’t unexpected that his time would come, but it was still a difficult decision.

He went peacefully in the evening. Our wonderful veterinarian came to the house with her assistant, put him to sleep, and then they took him away.

It’s been a very sad week here. Thank you for your condolences and sympathy!
